Gropius, Walter
C. F. Müller, Karlsruhe, 1929. 63 S. Querformatige Orig.-Broschur nach dem Entwurf und in typographischer Gestaltung von Kurt Schwitters. Mit dem Bau der Dammerstock-Siedlung setzte die Stadt Karlsruhe neue Maßstäbe und öffnete sich mit einem der prominentesten Beispiele des Neuen Bauens dem modernen Siedlungsbau. Zum Wettbewerb für den ersten Bauabschnitt von 228 Wohnungen wurden neben ortsansässigen Architekten auch Walter Gropius, Otto Haesler, Wilhelm Riphahn und Klaus Groth eingeladen. Auch das Preisgericht entsprach mit Architekten wie Ernst May, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe und Paul Schmitthenner der weit über die örtlichen Verhältnisse hinausreichenden Bedeutung der Ausschreibung. Den ersten Preis erhielt der Entwurf von Walter Gropius, der kurz zuvor die Leitung des Bauhauses aufgegeben hatte, gefolgt von Otto Haesler. Gropius übernahm die Oberleitung für den ersten Bauabschnitt und hatte die Tätigkeiten der daran beteiligten Architekten zu koordinieren. Die avantgardistische Bauweise des Architekten und geistigen Vaters der Siedlung, Walter Gropius, löste schon bei den Zeitgenossen heftige Diskussionen aus. Zentrale Idee seines Entwurfs war die Zeilenbauweise in nord-süd-parallel gesetzten Reihen, deren Enden zur Mitte abwechselnd mit quergestellten Kopfbauten versehen sind, die für ideale Lichtverhältnisse der Wohnungen sorgte. Aufgrund der Weltwirtschaftskrise wurde das Projekt nach dem ersten Bauabschnitt abgebrochen. Mit der Machtübernahme der Nationalsozialisten war an eine Wiederaufnahme nicht zu denken und die weitere Bebauung des Geländes erfolgte im konventio … [Click Below for Full Description]

With it, what audiences you would conquer! How your voice would ring over those great amphitheatres of Ancient Greece! What vast Athenian prospectors [?] would, in [?] future ages, fling the replica of your living characterizations over all the Earth and to the audiences of half a dozen planets at once! I am sorry I can only envisage it. Regretfully, Ray Cummings, Hamilton, Bermuda, July 1st, 1930". A time travel novel from one of the founding fathers of the science fiction pulp genre. "It took what seemed but half a day¬ís traveling to traverse the 28,000 years that separated Loto Rogers from the most beautiful girl he had ever seen. He had expected to find mighty cities and a flowering civilization in that future world, but instead he found only ice and snow - and Azeela."

Loose as issued in original wrappers with fine pochoir illustration to upper cover, contemporary slipcase and chemise. No. 59 of 120 copies created specially for members of Le Livre Contemporain under the direction of E. de Crauzat and A. Bertaut. This copy belonged to Monsieur C. Gauthier Lathuille. The work itself is a collection of 22 semi-biographical short stories about Petronius, Lucretius, Paolo Ucello, Pocahontas, William Kidd and other historical figures, first published in the newspaper Le Journal between 1894 and 1895. Incorporating myth and fantasy with historical facts, they are considered among the first of the genre of biographical fiction. Jorge Luis Borges was extremely fond of Schwob's writing. Barbier's plates are devoted to the subjects that interested him most. While preserving the settings and costumes of their times, he makes them all inhabitants of an elegant, ambiguous country in which conventional expectations are invariably disappointed. Of particular note are the frontispiece, showing the muse of intimate history gazing into a globe and dictating what she sees to Cupid; Clodia accompanying her brother to a Roman brothel; and Pocahontas meeting Captain John Smith.

Riga, "undzer Zukunft", 1929. Riga, "undzer Zukunft". 1929. First Edition. Hardback. 1st Yiddish Edition. 8vo, Later cloth with Original modernist color wrappers bound in, 159 pages. Includes illustrations of the human reproductive organs, labeled in Yiddish. In addition to the important content, the design of the cover is classic late 1920s modernist Yiddish book design, with the use of black and red lines and circles amongst the Yiddish lettering. Originally published in German as "Bub und Ma del; Gespra che unter Kameraden u ber die Geschlechterfrage, " the title translates as, "Guy and Gal: A Comradely Discussion about the Question of Morals. " 1st Yiddish translation, from Riga, of Max Hoddans progressive pro-sex discussion of changing sexual morals, advocating for a more open and liberal view of sexuality. Hodan who was Jewish, was Berlin's chief medical officer (surgeon-general) , and published the "Worker's Sexual Magazine, " perhaps not a surprise as "Hodan had been involved in the sex reform movement in Germany. His book gives us a good example of the price which the sex reformers took in what they saw as the dangerous struggle with puritanical ideas. Hodan wrote that the history of sexology was a 'record of the resistance of the champions of obsolete ideas and customs, threatened in their security and supremacy bu the pioneers of constructive progress'" (Jeffreys, The Spinster and Her Enemies: Feminism and Sexuality, 1880-1930.

Our 1st American edition is preceded in English by a quirky 1892-1893 Hong Kong edition, but quirky or not, that's the real 1st edition in English and thus it's worth more money. The rule that "1st editions are always more valuable than reprints of them" has its exceptions, but the exceptions are so few, and the individual reasons for their exception vary, and vary so haphazardly, that all attempts to form guidelines turn into a long climb up Mt. Anthill, and habitually lead to treeing the wrong bobcat. And in the "so few exceptions to the rule department" here's my query: Is Kim Jong-un, the only Asian who tests badly? Very good / good.

Faulkner, William
New York: Jonathan Cape and Harrison Smith, 1929 New York: Jonathan Cape and Harrison Smith, 1929. First edition, first printing. Publisher's quarter cream cloth, lettered in black, black and white patterned paper-covered boards, matching black and white coated endpapers, top edge stained black, fore edge untrimmed; lacking the original dust jacket. A very good copy with some wear and toning to extremities, minor tearing to cloth at spine ends, light toning to page edges, and offsetting to pp. 370-371 from something laid in that has since been removed, contemporary ownership signature to front pastedown. An attractive copy. From the library of Pulitzer Prize winning author Kenneth Silverman. The Sound and the Fury is Faulkner's fourth novel and features the Compson family, a once respected aristocratic family that has fallen into hard times, both financially and socially, in the 20th century. Like many of the author's works, The Sound and the Fury is set in the fictional Yoknapatawpha County in Mississippi, based on Faulkner's childhood experiences in Oxford. The novel is primarily written in stream-of-consciousness style and each of its four sections is narrated by and/or focuses on a different family member, each of which is affected by the family's plight in his or her own way. In Faulkner's non-chronological plot, the story is interspersed with characters' asynchronous thoughts and flashbacks. The Sound and the Fury is one of Faulkner's most highly acclaimed novels and played a major role in his receiving the 1949 Nobel Prize in Literature.

ONOFRI, Arturo
Roma, Al Tempo della Fortuna, 1929. PRIMA edizione di 500 esemplari numerati con firma autografa di Bice Onofri (Bice Sinibaldi, moglie di A.O.). In 8vo (cm. 20); copertina originale stampata; pp. 72, (6) + un foglietto di "errata". Con 20 pagine di prefazione di Nicola Moscardelli. Copia perfetta. Le ultime 33 poesie del grande affresco del Ciclo lirico usciranno postume, così come le ultime tre raccolte menzionate in precedenza sempre edite dalle amorevoli cure della moglie Bice, col titolo assai esemplificativo della nuova condizione raggiunta dal Poeta: Simili a melodie rapprese in mondo. La poesia di Arturo Onofri dell'ultimo periodo ha avuto più detrattori che sostenitori. Eppure mentre i poeti del Novecento ambivano ai premi letterari, alcuni divenendo famosi per averli ottenuti, altri divenuti famosi per non averli ottenuti, l'esempio dell'integrità poetica di Arturo Onofri è forse oggi uno dei più alti esempi della poesia del Novecento italiano e, forse, europeo.
